The plant general: Dracaena edition (Also tripless edition because I'm shit) Shoutout to the chillest houseplant known to man.
Welcome to /plant/, the resident plant general thread. Don't get scammed by Chinese seed dealers, watch your plants flower themselves to death and sit back and enjoy the fungi. What a fun guy. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
/Plant/ is for the discussion of plants (obviously). Horticulturists, hobbyists and botanists welcome! Questions about plants? Want to show off your two inch dick-I mean plant? Maybe you want to start growing?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Could somebody help identify a plant from description? It flowers like a sunflower but smaller and more intense with different colours. It has dark green waxy leaves which are slightly succulent and forms a short shrub. They grow and flower in autumn in a warm temperate climate if that helps.
I found this guy in my bathroom. He's a bit more than an inch long, all black, black wings (didn't see if he had one pair or two), antennae kind of curved. I'm in Chicago.
My roommate called me in the bathroom and asked me to dispose of a "big black ant", I highly doubt this guy's an ant but he does look sort of wasp like? So I'm sort of worried he's a carpenter ant swarmer or something. What do you think?
Ok guys, after 28 years of wanting a dog and 14 years of wanting that dog to be a border collie, i think i'm finally ready
- 28 years old - work for myself (home on weekdays, working outdoors at weekends but gf can take care of dog while i do that) - not making loads of money but i have 2 housemates so i'm living rent free, just paying bills
Should I do it? I know they're ridiculously energetic and intelligent. I can handle that. What are your opinions?
Make sure you always have $1,500 set aside for pupper disaster relief and then do your damnedest to find one you can adopt. If not, then buy from a breeder that asserts health is a priority over breed standards.
It's always good to have cash on hand in case there's ever an emergency that absolutely cannot wait for insurance verification. That's where most of the insurance horror stories I've heard come from - a super awesome plan that takes a day to verify and can end up being too late. The cash can always be reimbursed.
okay so my family takes trips to this place called bruny island (part of tasmania) and on one of these trips i found this on the beach
there had been a strong storm the night before, so i assumed it was a cocoon of some sort. I thought it was pretty cool and decided to keep it to see if it could still hatch. I kept it in the palm of my hand as we walked around the beach. i was fascinated by it and tried to look up what kind of cocoon it could be, but i couldnt find anything to match it. It was smooth, almost like skin, and about 2 inches long, but it didnt seem to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
For fucks sake, I am done with public off leash dog areas.
I had my 8 month old puppy on a long line practising sit, stay and come, sit in an area away from everybody else when a couple of guys with 2 pig dogs came down the other end of the beach.
I was keeping an eye on them as they got closer while still focusing on my dog. When they got close I took up my dogs long line so it made a foot long leash and made him sit between my legs. The brindle one came close and air snapped at my dog so I yelled and let my dog go so he could run or fight if he had to. My dog... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2143713 >had my 8 month old puppy on a long line practising sit, stay and come, sit in an area away from everybody welp, there was your mistake. why would you take a dog to a public off-leash area, and then not allow it to interact with other dogs? it sounds like the other dogs were just checking you and your dog out and you flipped the fuck out and started beating on them.
>>2143654 I'm just talking out of my ass here, but the drunk guy probably displayed total confidence (because he was tanked) and the lions could sense it. There's a whole hunting tactic that african bushmen use that revolves around this same thing- they wait for lions to make a kill, and then they just boldly stride in towards the pride and for whatever reason, it freaks them the fuck out and the lions retreat long enough for the bushmen to take their cuts of the meat and leave.
Basically he drunkenly freaked... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I saw my bf's cat rolling around outside today and noticed a wound on his chest/belly area. Not uncommon, he's an outdoor cat who was feral most of his life and is pretty confrontational.
However, usually I just find scrapes. This is a hole. It's deep and about the same size as a pencil eraser. The skin around it is inflamed, a bit raw and the hair has seemingly fallen out. My pictures are blurry, he wouldn't cooperate long enough for my camera to focus.
Is this larvae? Or something else? I tried to spread his skin to look in there and didn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
As >2143548 said. Just be aware that on some dogs (most of all greyhounds) it's better to use water a bit colder than that. In the case of greys it's because of the really low body fat percentage, which doesn't isolate the muscles and blood system causing it to heat faster. They can faint if you give them a hot shower.
There's a common trope in games or fantasy stories where creatures or characters associated with moths are poisonous.
What breeds of moth are actually poisonous (through bites, contact, etc)? I'm looking here and there, but I see nothing other than minute details about how certain breeds taste bad to predators as a result of their diet.
Hey everyone over the past two days these raw spots have shown up on my chocolate lab's head. I looked it up and apparently he may be rubbing his head on the ground due to ear infection. I want to know what you guys think, it's on both sides of his head and he does a lot of head shaking and itching and rubbing there so I think that's the issue.
Is veterinary schooling/care better in Japan than other countries? When I see videos of pet cockatoos and owls in Japan, they seem to be much more healthy and cared for than pet birds in America. How good is Japan at veterinary medicine?
In Japan (and most other 1st world Asian countries) "cute" is valued above almost all else so they strive to make and keep their pets cute. As soon as they aren't cute anymore they are often thrown out
I have a cat that I adopted a year ago, he's a big older cat, age ? Im not sure, anyway I got another cat which is a kitten, and all my older cat has been doing is hissing at the kitten and at everyone else in the house, he now spends more time outside than inside, only time he comes in is to eat.. will this change ? Is there any way i can get him use to the kitten? (Pic is my older cat)
Time. You can do some things like feed them on opposite sides of a door so he starts to associate the kitten's scent with food. You can also try artificial pheromone products like Feliway too. But at the end of the day, the only thing that will fix this is time.
